defensive and this is its way of striking back i think by targeting every government that supports political change in syria as supporters of terror. >> now, you're working very closely with various members of the opposition. there's been a lot of drift simple that they lacked unity. we're not quite sure who they are yet. do you think that they're ready for government yet? >> there is still a significant level of competition and conflict within the syrian opposition. but on a number of issues, including the kind of post-assad future that the opposition is fighting for. we find significant convergence across different spectrums of the opposition that was evident in the work we did with them, it's evident in the work the group that the arab league has sponsored, and i think these are very promising sides because even the question of who will lead remains unsettled and even if that continues to be a source of some competition among the opposition, that there are significant elements on which they can agree and that they can build on as the possibility for political change becomes clos

robust defense of america's constitutional rights. how do you think it goes across the muslim world in the wake of this controversial one? >> he tried to do three things and i thought he was very effective. first, he talked about a very strong case for u.s. leadership in the world. he condemned the violence and also made the case for free speech and what that means in the world. secondly, he talked about the advancement of democracy. how that is founded on principles. and thirdly, i thought he talked very effectively to a domestic audience, a litany of achievements that he has obtained in his foreign policy, thereby strengthening his record there. contrasting what governor romney might do or what he might not do. >> as a candidate in the days of the berlin speech, he talked about the need to tear down the wall between christians and jews and muslims. but that was as high as ever. >> as ambassador to india for a few years, you see a lot of good things in the world. the ambassador was killed and i lived in india for several years. and to see jews and christians and muslims and hindus and

around the trajectory. president obama has high stakes. he is on the defensive. he has to show people what he has in store, but just by being on the same stage with him, mitt romney gains in stature. >> at this stage, is anything more that we will learn more? this is so choreographed. we all know what they're going to say. we're going to see barack obama make mistakes in the debate. he said to mitt romney -- the line he said to hillary clinton, you are likable enough. neither one is apt to make a huge gaffe. >> who is undecided? this is all about. >> tiny amounts of people. tiny amounts of precincts in states. in some ways, it might not be mitt romney's last chance that it is his last best chance to break through and show people that he cares about them, he cares about their problems but that has been an issue for him. he has advantages on some of the other issues. so much of these debates is about the body language, the social clues. do they look pleasant? did they look like someone you want to have in your living room for the next four years? that will be important. >> in terms of t

agree on the final $2 billion euros. athens wants spending cuts in defense and local authorities where as the international lenders are saying we want to see further cuts in salaries and jobs. that's a problem with athens because the finance minister is saying hang on. have you seen the pictures here? any further cuts in salaries and jobs could to the government. that would have serious preliminary cases and this could delay this next chunk of bailout money. we've got a dispute going on between the lenders. the i.m.f. wants to be strict and let's just have a listen about that situation from our correspondent on the ground in athens. >> disagreement within the tricyclea doesn't bode well for an agreement within the government. we're hearing the i.m.f. has taken a harder line than european commission and central bank so the greek crisis is still intractable. no one knows quite how the solve it. greece will enter its sixth conservative -- sixth consecutive year and public debt is set to sore to 179% of g.d.p. >> and of course that would be by far the highest in the euro zone. so thi

the church, in his words. perhaps he has been framing that kind of defense throughout the course of the morning. >> we will have to wait and see what transpires in court, but this comes after things light the child abuse scandal. how damaging has this been for the church? >> there was one very serious sounding the credit the beginning from one senior figure in the vatican. the first was that they had allegedly found corruption in the vatican. but there was another lesson later with a besieged the pope to stop him from being shunted aside, sent abroad to expose this kind of corruption. obviously, that sort of thing raises all sorts of questions about the way that the vatican manages its business. i have to say that the rest of it tends to be much less dramatic and interesting. it tended to be revealing of a certain deal of power struggling and maneuvering, backbiting amongst senior figures in the vatican. more like office politics, stuff you get in any large organization. having said that, the vatican would like to think that it is not just any large organization, they like to think
